主要Semillon的無濾過巔峰之作

開始的熱帶水果來得非常親切,包括新鮮生菠蘿洋桃蜜蠟香氣,香氣的表現是一塵不染的自然感,非塵世,較像是隱世的香味,入口那準確無誤複雜具層次的酸度,口感結構的宏大一刻令人想起布根地的Puligny-Montrachet,但那張力的表現手法否定了那想法,或許更像Premier Cru Meursault?一時間沒有答案,我分別用了四款不同的酒杯,看看哪表現最好,最後也是Zalto Burgundy杯子最適合不過,將那磅礴感盡情表現但入口不失細緻的質感,果然是杯中最上乘的精品。一兩小時後透徹的酸度和礦物依然非常明顯,感覺2017年至今已差不多四年,再上柏克網看看說這已達成熟期,但不對,看那鋤頭也敲不開的酸度和結構已覺不可能一晚能搞定,把心一橫,放到雪櫃到第二天再來

到下午四時,再從雪櫃拿出來,待個數分鐘回溫,再來一小口,我的天呀! 怎會這樣好喝! ? 複雜度絲毫不減,但果香更立體,結構上稜角更少,令人可更專注地觀察和享受那如天籟般純淨的味道,香氣那和熙的溫度,入口那圓潤具張力的餘韻,已不再令人聯想起葡萄品種的味道,反而是透視了夢幻般合沓山巒的意境,若Hunter Valley的Semillon是國色天香,這千米高比利牛斯山上的Semillon便是絕代芳華,嘆為觀止的意境令人一斟再斟,毫無疑問是千米高山上的神殿級佳品! 

註:Taleia Brisat是另一名作Taleia的自然酒版本,半數酒陳年在法國木桶達11個月,石窖原生酵母發酵,無濾過,無添加SO2 (之前稱作: - (Minus) SO2)。

於Costers del Segre的Pyrenees分區,Raul Bobet於海拔1,000米的Talarn村釀造驚為天人的葡萄酒。產品皆以梵文或以葡萄生長的地方命名。時至今日,大部分酒都於12世紀的石窖中發酵,當大家看見它時便會相信,過程並不是最重要,最重要的是非常出色的結果,因為這是近來最令人振奮的西班牙酒莊。而Raul Bobet也是有份負責Ferrer Bobet酒莊的人,在那裡他與葡萄酒發燒友Sergi Ferrer-Salat合作,展現出1000米高山的獨特風味。

Raul Bobet’s groundbreaking wines from the Pyrenees subzone of the Costers del Segre appellation, are produced in the village of Talarn at 1,000 metres altitude. The wines are named with Sanskrit words or after the places where grapes are grown. Nowadays most of the wines are fermented in the 12th century stone lagares from the property. It has to be seen to be believed. However, the process is not the most important thing, what is really important is that the results are superb. These are some of the most exciting new wines throughout Spain. And Bobet, the ex-Torres enquiring mind, is also responsible for the breathtaking Priorats from the Ferrer-Bobet winery, his joint venture with entrepreneur and wine lover Sergi Ferrer-Salat.

Country of Origin:
Spain / Catalonia

Type:
White/Blanc (Still)

Grape Varieties:
Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon

Vinification:
Manual harvesting in small boxes of 10 kg of grapes coming solely from our vineyard.
All the wine has been elaborated taking care that it was native yeast; a part has been fermented in stone cups (S. XII), and the rest in stainless.
All the wine has been aged in barrel for about 12 months.

In the wine, there has never been any addition of sulfites or any kind of antioxidant.

Tasting Notes:

On the view – Light yellow straw.

On the nose – Complex, with fine shades of undergrowth and subtle notes of oak.

In the mouth – A wine with body and an important nerve that prolongs the mouth.

Comments – This wine can develop sediments, because of the lack of clarification. Due to the presence of sulfites it is necessary to keep it in cool conditions in order to avoid unwanted evolutions. Thanks to its acidity it will have a better aging than the average of natural wines, as long as it is stored under suitable conditions and temperatures.
